F10 Drivers Average Age

I've been wondering if anyone knows the average age of an F10 owner. I'm thinking along the lines of older. Thanks

In the U.S. it's right at 55 years old.

44 here. 55 seems about right, but the average age of enthusiasts that use a forum like this will be much younger.

55 seems high to me. I would think somewhere around 45 is average but that's just a guess. 55 as an average means there are a lot above that age driving 5's and while that isn't necessarily surprising, I would think that's more of an E class crowd, and that there are more 5 owners in their 40's and late 30's than in their 50's and 60's.

Was 55 based on an actual stat somewhere?

Nearly every F10 driver I've seen on the road is dirt old. It makes sense as people in their 20s and 30s generally do not have the disposable income to buy a car over $60k. And if they do, they usually go for something else.

Actually new cars in general are bought by older people. Even the Civic in its Fast and Furious phase, had the buyers at an average age of nearly 50.

You just feel that it's younger because of the people you associate yourself with. It's a very biased sample of the general population.

I've read somewhere that the average age of a BMW 3 series buyer is low 40s. 3 series is their volume segment so that's a lot of weight towards the average. 5 series should be mid 50s or higher. Overall average age for BMW drivers are 49.

The people on this web forum might not be entirely representative of the average BMW 5-series owner
